. "pew research poll"ing shows since the debate last week, mitt romney leaping ahead of president obama. what a swing that is, 49-45%. keep in mind that is likely voters too. you have to ask a few more questions to figure out whether you're registered voter or likely voter. likely voter polls are more accurate in the end. look who is back here. martha: hello, everybody. bill: celebrating columbus day. martha: i always do. thank goodness he discovered the country. good morning i'm martha maccallum. mitt romney ahead of the president but wiping out the double digit lead with women voters. you remember what that used to be. bill: republican nominee continues to press on this issue, that's the economy. >> can we afford four more years like the last four years? he wants another stimulus. how did that first one work out? and then, he wants to pick winners and losers among companies, or losers in his case and then, of course he wants to hire more government workers. look, all of these things have not ignited our economy the way it should be ignited. we've seen the slowest recovery from a reces

today. mitt romney with a four-point lead over president obama. now it is just one poll out of many, but it does prove this election is not in the bag yet. it is going to be a close one and democrats have to continue to work their tails off between now and november 6th. 28 days left. but first here we go with today's current news. hi, lisa, good morning. >> hey, bill good morning, everyone. president obama leaves san francisco this morning, and then he heads to columbus, ohio where he is speaking at ohio state university. mitt romney is hosting an event at the koch family farm and then heads to a rally. several news outlets are pointing out how similar mitt romney's plan is to president obama's. his goal yesterday was to outline a stark contrast to president obama. as think progress notes there are at least four major areas where romney and the president's plan are nearly identical. one is afghanistan. both plan to transfer power to local security forces by the end of 2014. syria, romney wants to give aid to neighboring states. number 3 is iran where both romney

the country on the difference between obama and romney on the big issues of our times. time to attack. time to remind voters who rode to the rescue -- who did ride to the rescue of the american auto industry and who stood out there telling it to go bankrupt. time to attack. which candidate fought to get equal pay for equal work for women so no girl in america will ever grow up thinking her time, her sweat is worth less than a boy's? time to attack. which candidate saw 40 million people uninsured americans dragging themselves to sit for hours in emergency rooms across the country? he saw it, obama did, and refused to let it stay that way through yet another presidency. mitt romney saw the way things were and said he wants to keep things that way. if you don't have shoorns, tough. go get a seat with the other victims and moochers. well, this is where romney's vulnerable, where obama can come charging from his ground of strength. now is the time. romney taken to task for his positions so far from the american mainstream. i'm joined by democrat strategist bob shrum and former chair of the rnc m
deficits. president obama says it's not a concern in the short-term. the debate tomorrow night and the obama camp there's concern that he is so smart, we won't understand what he's saying and this morning the media displays headlines that are clearly negative on governor romney. the dow will open higher again. congress is said to be working on a budget deal. that's a plus for stocks, but question, has the little guy missed this rally? we've got it all. wait till you hear herman cain go after a student heckler and wait until you see bill o'reilly on this program today.

position of the current president of the united states. this guy named barack obama. romney didn't offer any additional specifics, so it is hard to tell if he has really any disagreement with the president over afghanistan. the same goes for iran. >> i'll put the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring weapon escapebility. >> if you believe the new mitt romney, he is going to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. president obama says the same thing. but mitt romney doesn't say how he will prevent iran from getting any nuclear weapon. he also doesn't tell you who is advising him on all of these matters. one of his foreign policy advisors is former bushy john bolton who never met a bomb he couldn't launch. earlier this area bolton told fox news the bet wear toy prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons is to attack its program directly. oh, boy. another romney adviser, here is a dandy, his former bush state department official robert joseph. joseph, now you're wondering, where do we know this guy from. he has been c
. the candidates are hitting the trail strong this week. both mitt romney and president obama will start the day off in virginia. the president then heads to oakland, ohio where early voting is already underway. and romney hosts a rally in st. petersburg, florida this evening. romney's challenge now is to prove that was the real mitt romney we saw at the debates. the confident asserttive romney we saw during the debate is not the romney we have grown used to over the last couple of months. romney has since stood by his 47% statement but now he is rolling it back. here is what he said yesterday. >> it's completely wrong. and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown they care about 100%. >> you might think that this new romney is nothing but an act. if you do, you are not alone. here is what the president had to say to a crowd of 30,000 people yesterday in madison, wisconsin. >> i met this very spirited fellow who claims to be mitt romney. but i know it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country this past year pr

far. about 12,000 people here at this town square. where president obama won by 12 points back in 2008. he is feeling pretty good about things in florida. a new rasmussen poll has the governor two points ahead. here at this event he was looking to the next presidential debate a week from tuesday. he says he has questions on the president from taxes to debt and spending. >> he wants another stimulus? how did the first one work out? he wants to hire more government workers? he wants to pick with winners and losers solyndra, losers in his case. we know where that leads. we have seen the last four years. we don't want four more years like the last four years. >> reporter: the debate at the university on long island is going to include foreign policy. to that end the governor is rolling out the foreign policy ball. he has a big speech on foreign policy at virginia military institute in lexington. >> gregg: tell us how big the first debate is playing out in the campaign ads. >> reporter: both sides are trying to portray the other as the bigger fiber. he has new ad from both campaigns and bot
candidates will be there today. and look at this. romney's catching up dramatically. president obama's still ahead 51% to 47%. but his four-point lead falls now within the poll's sampling error. the president had a nine-point lead in our most recent poll of polls in ohio, which was completed just before last week's presidential debate in denver. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us from the state capital of columbus right now. john, you're taking a closer look at the new numbers in this ohio poll. what are you seeing? >> reporter: wolf, if you had any doubt the first debate gave governor romney a significant meaningful bounce, this erases them. we've seen it in the national polls. now we see it in our brand new poll here in ohio. you just mentioned the numbers. that's a statistical tie and a big comeback for governor romney for where he was pre-debate. look at with four weeks to go certain to be a hard-fought battleground. independents, the president up four points. that's within a margin of error. the suburbs, the cincinnati and cleveland suburbs, when it's close, statis
life? let us listen to president obama. [video clip] >> the first role is to keep the american people state. that is its most basic function. as commander in chief, that is something that have worked on and thought about every single day i have been in the oval office. but i also believe that government has the capacity, the federal government has the capacity to help open up opportunities and create opportunity and create frameworks were the american people can succeed. the genius of america is the free enterprise system. and freedom. and the fact that people can go out and start a business, work on an idea. make their own decisions. but, as abraham lincoln understood, there are also some things we do better together. in the middle of the civil war, abraham lincoln said, let us help to finance the transcontinental railroad. but us start the national academy of sciences. let us start colleges. because we want to give the gateways of -- date was of opportunities for all americans. all americans are getting opportunities, that enhances people's freedom. what i have tried to do as presid
crisis. this, as the obama campaign touts a new report showing the unemployment rate dropping to 7.8%. governor romney citing millions of americans forced into part-time jobs and many who have simply stopped looking for week. in his weekly internet address, president obama says the new report shows the country is headed in the right direction. and new video out of israel showing an israeli fighter jet shooting down an unmanned drone inside their air space. right now, investigators are searching the drone's wreckage in the southern part of the country and israeli media sources saying it was not carrying weapons, but appears to be gathering information. and we'll be back at 6 eastern alongside rick fulbaum. >> paul: welcome back to the journal, editorial report. coming up in this half hour, the supreme court is back in session and promising to be another tumultuous turn as it references racial preferences and college admissions. could it be a potential pickup of republicans in the bluest of blue states. first an update on the investigation into last month's deadly attacks in benghazi
to iowa farm country voters penalling to end what he called the obama administration overregulation of agriculture and promised to open more world markets and reduce energy costs. >> there are big differences between the president and me. he has no plan for rural america. no plan for agriculture. no plan for getting people back to work. i do. >> romney released a policy paper on rural issues and ripped the president for squeezing the economy critically important agriculture industry. >> president has idea he wants to raise the tax rate from 3% to 40%. that won't be good for forms. my own view is i want to take the tax rate down. >> following iowa, romney flew to ohio, critical battleground to his victory strategy, where the voter registration ends today. romney i return at least four times in just the next week. romney aides are touting their ground game and grassroots enthusiasm. in florida, 43.5% of absentee ballot requests came from republicans. 39% for democrats. among those returned so far, 45% are g.o.p. only 38% are democrats. in colorado, republicans requested 656,000 absent
. >> president obama in san francisco last night sounded a new urgency, trying to get people to vote. >> i need you in this election. the next 29 days. we cannot afford to be complacent and we cannot afford to be sitting. >> buckeye battleground, obama and romney both in ohio tonight. the state that matters most to republicans. first, romney kicks off the day at a family farm in iowa where he will be speaking minutes from now. and the battle over big bird, the president turns his attack into a punch line and a commercial, as sesame workshop and senator john mccain cried foul over the obama campaign's new bird ad. >> elmo is -- has been seen in a white suburban he's driving for the border. oscar is hide out in his trash can. we're cracking down on them. governor romney's plan is to let wall street run wild again but he's going to bring the hammer down on sesame street. >> one thing that president obama can't run on is his record, and so big bird, i guess, is a fun thing to talk about. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. president obama and mitt romney are heading back to ohio to
, which still has obama in the lead, and the obama campaign is getting a lot of attention with this brand-new ad featuring big bird. >> criminals, glutens of greed and the evil genius who towered over them? one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird. big bird. big bird. >> it's me, big bird. >> big, yellow, a menace to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. >> i want to bring in anne kornblut, deputy national politics editor for "washington post," and "usa today" politics reporter jackie kucinich. good morning. >> good morning. >> good to see you both. >> good morning. >> anne, let me start with you. there are a number of polls that show nationally a number of different things. what's the big picture here? is it that this is still the horse race? >> i think that's exactly the takeaway, that regardless of what the variations may be in a couple of the, really, the big two polls you mentioned, gallup and pew, it's a close race. i think there was a perception coming out of the conventions and particularly with obama getting so
's look at these numbers. president obama still comfortably ahead. in fact, he's picked up a point. he's at 51%. mitt romney is at 43%. both campaigns think this one is getting more difficult by the moment for mitt romney to win. however -- and this is where it gets fascinating -- in virginia, the president's lead has shrunk to just two points, within the margin of error. last month president obama led by five points there. in florida, mitt romney has closed the gap as well. he's now statistically tied in the state of florida. it is a one-point lead. 47%-46%. al hunt, it is fascinating. ohio seems to be on its own as far as the swing states go. but we could show other swing state polls in colorado, in nevada, in north carolina. these states are really getting tight, to such a degree that a great performance by romney tonight could change the dynamic. >> conceivably, but i don't think it's quite that close yet. i think you certainly see it, as you point out, in florida and virginia. you don't see it in ohio. wisconsin it looks like it's actually widening. iowa, it's four to six. and the
at this, florida, 49% right now to 47%, that's big bump from where president obama was leading mitt romney in the all important swing state. >> yeah, governor romney and his wife were down in florida yesterday campaigning hard and getting a pretty good reception. let's look at ann romney with some of the voters yesterday. >> every year, the median income in america-- >> and you are a tremendous asset to your husband. >> i appreciate that. you know, i-- we're doing everything we can, my boys, myself just out there working as hard as we can. >> well, i really believe that your husband is going to be-- i think they will have as much as ronald reagan did, he's going to do bet. >> i felt that for a long time. >> well, the wives of course in in race have high approval rating and favor ann romney and favor michelle obama, the wives are a huge asset. >> and president obama was off the campaign trail yesterday and finally celebrating his wedding anniversary, as you know fell on the night of the debate. so mitt romney was unencumbered on the campaign trail. there was no response that the president c
entirely after the first debate, now showing a four point obama lead. that's a statistical tie. it is a significant change from the seven to ten point lead the president enjoyed before the debate. new polling as well from sienna college that shows a statistical tie in pennsylvania. that's based on surveys done both before and after the debate and nationally in gallup's daily tracking poll which covers october 2nd through the 8th, mitt romney now holds a two point edge. today, gallup shifted from registered to likely voters, which tends to favor republicans. that said, though, it is hard to find any evidence, any evidence that president obama escaped denver without at least some damage. the only question being how severe and how long-lasting. that seems hard to dispute. just as it's hard to dispute that prior to the debate, mr. romney was getting hammered in the polls. keeping them honest though, disputing or downplaying the obvious, that's what campaigns do on both sides. >> it's not going to be about the polls. >> i wouldn't put a lot of weight in any of these national polls f
the debate. that is a big swing from mid-september when president obama was ahead by eight. that was this afternoon, a short time ago, a poll running in the detroit free press shows the president's lead shrinking to just three points in michigan. mr. obama had a ten point lead there last month. mitt romney's running mate, paul ryan, is in michigan tonight addressing a rally at oakland university in the town of rochester just outside detroit. the question tonight, if the mood of voters is changing here, could it also be a sign that it's changing in ohio as well, another key battleground state. the poll in the free press and the pew poll not the only good news for the romney forces. they got a big boost as well in gallup's tracking poll which shows a 47-47 tie among likely voters contacted on the 4th through the 6th. in pre-debate polling, mr. obama, president obama, led by five. now, as for today's pew poll, the obama campaign takes issue with the party make-up of people surveyed, saying it tilts republican compared to september. the romney campaign, on the other hand, says
. >> this country has a crime problem. >> not a gun problem. >> no. i don't think president obama is proposing more gun laws. we have make sure we have enforce our laws. we need to make sure we enforce the laws. best way to prevent violent crime in the cities is bring opportunity. >> that is all they are releasing. too many people are making about the fact that paul ryan was about to stop to the interview. we have verb batum of what happened next. >> gretchen: the reporter and they were talking about gun violence in the inner city and paul ryan said bringing opportunity. >>> and you can do that with cutting taxes with a big tax cut. >> paul ryan said those are your word and not mine thampts kind of strange are you trying to stuff words in people's mouths. this was a local affiliate out of flint, michigan. an important state. >> brian: especially the polls are closing to within three. and it is interesting that paul ryan is out giving interviews and vice-president biden is in a six day -- c>> steve: no kidding. good for paul ryan stick to the press. the guy had something in mind. and it is the thing
